Island Soap & Candle Works Has Recalled Candles

Honolulu, HI (SafetyAlerts) - Island Soap & Candle Works has recalled about 29,000 candles. Pieces of the candles' wick can fall off while burning and the wick can re-ignite after extinguishing, posing a burn and fire hazard.

CPSC and Island Soap & Candle Works have received one report of a fire that caused minor property and smoke damage. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled candles have a single wick surrounded by wax in a brown coconut shell. They were sold in about 20 different scents and ranged in sizes from "Mini" to "Large." The coconut shell has a label on the bottom that reads "Island Soap & Candle Works...Hand made in Hawaii...Do not leave a burning candle unattended." Some of the candles have moon and star cutouts around the upper rim of the coconut shell.

Island Soap & Candle Works exclusively sold these candles in Oahu, Maui, and Kauai, Hawaii and Monterey, California from April 2000 through April 8, 2002 for between $8 and $15.

Consumers should stop using the candles immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund. The candles also can be mailed to the firm at 900 Fort Street Mall, Suite #1220, Honolulu, HI 96813 to receive a refund.
